I'll vote for applying patch #751916, which fixes some memory leaks in the timeout code, and allows the SSL code to recover from keyboard interrupts. I have several applications that work with 2.2.x that do not currently with the 2.3 CVS due to this issue.
Can someone review this and apply if it's okay? From this description I'd be okay with including it, but I have no time to review.
